Lately, I have been walking at the mall a few times per week. I want to get a bit of exercise, and the mall is the logical place to do that until it gets warmer outside. If anyone wants to set up a time to walk together, I'm up for that. I'd love to build a friendship while walking.

A couple months ago, my mom sent me something about a certain store in the mall that is known for having inappropriate displays- nearly nude models right out front for everyone to see. http://americandecency.org/main.php?f=updates_new/2007/december/12.14a.07
It's about time!

Last week, when I walked past this store, I was pleasantly surprised to see that the store had switched to using models WITH CLOTHES ON! Yay!

Now women won't be faced with an image that displays all that is comparatively inadequate about their own bodies. Now we won't have to shield our children from images they should not be exposed to. Now men walking by won't have to deal with this potential stumbling block in their quest for pure thoughts.

Unfortunately, the store does still have some small posters displayed in front of the store that could qualify as "soft" porn. I look forward to the removal of those pictures as well.

Interesting you should post about this. My cousin and I walk on Mondays and Wednesdays from 6:30 until we get our 5 laps in (sometimes stopping for ice cream afterwards---but its 96% fat free frozen yogurt, so it's ok). I just asked my cousin about this *exact* thing last week.

Praise the Lord. It is really disheartening to bring our children up in a culture that devalues God's design for sex between one man and one wife.

May God convict those who sell sex and pervert what He designed for intimacy and joy in Holy matrimony.

God have mercy on us and cover us with His truth!
